12. |
Copy circle 1 three times, to the centers of circles 11. | ||||

13. |
Draw the three rays from the center of circle 1 to the mutual intersections of circles 12, and extend these in opposite directions up to the outer sides of circles 12. | ||||

14. |
Construct three circles concentric to circles 12, each passing through the two near intersections of circle 9 and lines 13, that lie inside the overlapping areas of circles 12, as shown. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 5 three times, to the outer intersections of circles 12 and lines 13. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the outer ring of intersections of hexagrams 4 and 6. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 10 to the center of upper circle 15. | ||||

20. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of the lower left circle 17, with an angular point coincident with the end-point of lower left line 18 (extended line 13). | ||||

21. |
Copy circle 3 to the center of the lower right circle 15. | ||||

22. |
Extend lower right line 18 up to the lower right side of circle 21. | ||||

23. |
Create the inscribed hexagram of circle 21 by constructing two inscribed equilateral triangles, one pointing to the end of line 22, one pointing towards the center of circle 1. | ||||

24. |
Construct three pairs of parallel lines, by connecting opposite pairs of intersections of the lower right circle 15 and hexagram 23, as shown. | ||||

25. |
Copy circles 7 and 10 to the center of the lower right circle 15. | ||||

26. |
Draw two rays of hexagram 23 from the center of the lower right circle 15 to the upper right and lower angular points, as shown. | ||||

27. |
Circles 9, 11, 12, 14, 15, 17, 19 and 25, triangle 20, and lines 24 and 26 are the constituents of the final reconstruction. | ||||
